Going to the beach is a fun summertime activity, but no one can deny that hours in the sun can leave your skin feeling hot and uncomfortable. Luckily, with the help of a few cooling products, you can feel better instantly! Check out our list of must-have cool down products for an easy solution to your hottest summer days out!
We all love to spend time outside, especially when the weather is hot and sunny. But, there is always a cost to that day in the sun — dry, dehydrated skin! Of course, you should ALWAYS wear sunscreen but if you still manage to burn, you can stop paying the price by using a post sun gel that is sure to cool down your skin and leave you feeling hydrated and refreshed.
Cooling Gels — Instantly Cool Your Worst Sunburn
As summer winds down, we all want to get in as much beach time as possible. But, those hours in the sun can not only give you some serious dry skin, but also leave you with a nasty sunburn — ouch!
Of course, the most important thing to consider when spending some time in the sun is your health! Make sure you load up on the SPF before you even step foot outside. But if you forget to reapply, or forget put it on in the first place, there is no need to panic! All over cooling products have been popping up for exactly this purpose — to cool down and rehydrate your sun-exposed skin!
These products come in a wide variety of scents and brands, making them perfect for anyone suffering from a little sunny skin dehydration.
For a traditional cooling gel, we recommend Sun Bum’s ‘Cool Down’ Hydrating After Sun Gel. This product is made to be applied as soon as you finish your beach day and will provide that extra hydrated feeling for your skin. Using all-natural tea tree oils, this gel will provide quick relief to your most painful sunburn!
If you are looking for a cooling gel that doubles as a soap, try Frisson De Verveine Fresh Shower Gel from L’Occitane! This soap will gently clean and soothe even the most sunburnt skin, and is a great way to combine the soothing power of a cooling gel, with the all natural freshness of verbena leaves.
Finally, for a refreshing anytime boost we love H2O+’s Oasis Mist. This spray can be used any time and will restore the pH of your skin, making you feel refreshed and renewed. Keep it in your purse for a refreshing anytime, anywhere spritz!
Keep Hydrated On Long Sunny Days
Keeping your skin feeling amazing, even after a long day at the beach, is all about one thing — water! Keeping hydrated is the best thing you can do for your body on those hot summer days.
Make sure that you are drinking at least 8 cups of water per day, lathering on that sunscreen, and being careful with your sun exposure. But, in case something happens, having one of these cooling products handy is the perfect way to soothe your sunny day pain!
